Make these changes to improve the property’s energy efficiency.
Recommended improvements are grouped by the estimated time it would take for the change to pay for itself. The assessor may also make additional recommendations.
Each recommendation is marked as low, medium or high. This shows the potential impact of the change on reducing the property’s carbon emissions.
Changes that pay for themselves within 3 years
Consider replacing T8 lamps with retrofit T5 conversion kit.
Introduce HF (high frequency) ballasts for fluorescent tubes: Reduced number of fittings required.
In some spaces, the solar gain limit in criterion 3 of ADL2A 2010 is exceeded, which might cause overheating. Consider solar control measures such as the application of reflective coating or shading devices to windows.
Changes that pay for themselves within 3 to 7 years
Consider replacing heating boiler plant with high efficiency type.
Add optimum start/stop to the heating system.
Changes that pay for themselves in more than 7 years
The default heat generator efficiency is chosen. It is recommended that the heat generator system be investigated to gain an understanding of its efficiency and possible improvements.
Some windows have high U-values - consider installing secondary glazing.
Add weather compensation controls to heating system.
Carry out a pressure test, identify and treat identified air leakage. Enter result in EPC calculation.
Install more efficient water heater.
